    My TV does the same thing and won't come on unless I unplug it for at least an hour. It then comes on like nothing ever happened. However, it sucks when I mistakenly turn it off and want to watch TV!

Have the same model and same problem
probably It is a bad inverter board, in my case one of the 16 transformers is burnt out on the inverter board. still trying to find a replacement component. if not replacing the board is the only option or getting the inverter board repaired.

by the way, this TV has a Samsung panel: model LTA320W2-L03. so it needs parts for a Samsong not a DELL.
DELL does not manufacture or fix them becuase they don't make them

My dell w3201c tv displays "no video signal" when i power it on

Coaxial cable does not carry video signals but rather rf-signals
To use coax you will have to tune like you are searching for a signal from your aerial..
If you prefer to use video then you will have to use a video cable either rca or hdmi. you can then choose video or hdmi from the remote

We have a 32 in lcd dell tv with sound no picture...

Yes, either a new back light, or a new inverter (the circuit inside the TV that powers the back light):

It looks like the parts for your TV are readily available online (unusual), but I couldn't find the backlight itself, sorry.

No picture, when powering up the light will turn yellow, them the t.v powers up and can hear sound but no picture, and then hear a click and light flashes green.

First turn on,do the power LED light stable?Few sec.Power LED and LED OPC flashes?This very common on Sharp tv,tries power off/on at 4 or 5 each time it flashes,well power up have backlight on and it work.After this doesn't work than ur Tuner Signal board it dead.

Dell W3201c TV

I bought two sets at the same time and the sound has gone out on both,  So far no luck with Dell or a soloution.  The post on attaching a surround system sounds like a good idea, but I can't get this to work.  With a little feed back I'll create a site to log how many have this problem, a few can be understood, but from what I'm reading the sets were defective when shipped and Dell must know of the problem,

No Picture, No Sound...Please Help

The most common problem this set has is the Horizontal Output shorting, usually caused by the High Voltage transformer drawing to much current. Whether it's the high voltage circuit or the power supply, having a tech look at this set would not be cost effective. Start looking at the newer technology. Hope this helped.
